Abstract

The ADR (alternative dispute resolution) bandwagon is rolling. Clients are becoming disenchanted with traditional litigation, and they're hearing about ADR. ADR has three broad categories: mediation, the mini-trial, and arbitration. Attorneys can provide a real service to clients by being familiar with and developing skills in ADR.

Keywords: ADR, alternative dispute resolution, settlements, mediation, arbitration, conciliation, mini-trials, court-annexed arbitration, litigation
